Do all things without murmuring and arguing,
so that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, in which you shine like stars in the world.
It is by your holding fast to the word of life that I can boast on the day of Christ that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
